Seth Robertson has always been a hard-nosed player who says tenacity is an important aspect of his game.

“I bring a lot of tenacity to the game,” he said. “Tenacity on the field is about giving your best and never giving up while showing good sportsmanship,”

Throughout his life on the gridiron with the Cambridge Lions of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL), and the Jacob Hespeler Hawks of the Waterloo County Secondary School Athletics Association (WCSSAA), Robertson has developed an immense passion for the game, and for playing wideout.

“I have always enjoyed the complexity of the wide receiver position and the physical demands of playing it,” he expressed.” Also, I love having fun making catches.”

The 5’10, 153 lb. Cambridge Lions standout models his game after an NFL Hall of Fame receiver.

“[I look up to] Jerry Rice because of his drive to better his game, and unwillingness to give up,” stated Robertson. “He has a good attitude and is a natural leader. He always wanted to help his teammates.”

Robertson was apart of the West Junior Varsity Team that beat Halton-Peel in the 2015 Ontario Prospect Challenge, and will be competing in his second consecutive game on April 30.

“My cousin Blair Robertson played and let me know about the game,” he said of his introduction to the event. “The process has been a great opportunity to develop skills and be taught by new coaches.”


The Jacob Hespeler Hawks standout is excited about challenging himself at this year’s event.

“[I’m looking forward to] getting to play at a higher competitive level and to challenge myself to do my best,” elaborated Seth. “Playing against higher competition challenges me to work harder and learn from others on the field.”

Robertson has won a Bantam OVFL Championship 2015, WCSSAA high school championship and an OPC in the last twelve months, and he thinks being on the stage of the OPC again will be beneficial.

“I think it will help me to stay focused on performing at my highest capacity,” said the Team West freshman. “Highest capacity means being a team player, learning new techniques from the coaches and needing to work harder to step up my game.”

“It will be a successful OPC if I am able to give it my all and help my team both on the field and on the sidelines.”
